At Whitby Distillery, we take pride in our authentic craftsmanship, ensuring that every drop of our gin and rum reflects the unique spirit of Whitby. Our distillation process is an art form, a dedication to both tradition and innovation.
Meet Dora-Grace, Our Copper Still:
Our 300L copper still, Dora-Grace, is more than just a distillation apparatus; it's a tribute to Dora Walker, a remarkable figure from Whitby's history. Dora was the North Sea's sole female skipper during World War II, and her spirit of resilience and adventure inspires our craft.
One Pass, Superior Quality:
We believe in producing only the finest spirits, and that's why we follow a single-shot London Dry Gin distillation process. This meticulous approach ensures that our gin captures the essence of our botanicals in one pass. The result? A superior quality product that speaks for itself. We don't chill filter our gin, allowing the flavorful botanical oils to shine. When you chill our gin, you'll notice its captivating pearlescent glow.
We use a mix of traditional ingredients and forgotten flavours from the North Yorkshire Coastline without or award winning recipes.
The Essence of Our Coastline:
Our commitment to the community and the environment is at the heart of everything we do. Our gin and rum are a reflection of the North Yorkshire coastline, where rugged landscapes meet the deep blue sea. We explore this dynamic contrast to source native botanicals that infuse our spirits with distinctive character.
North Yorkshire's Finest Ingredients:
From the heather flowers we collect in collaboration with the North York Moors Authority to the forgotten flavors we gather from the sea with SeaGrown, our botanicals tell the story of our region. Sugar kelp, pepper dulse, and Yorkshire honey are just a few of the ingredients that make their way into our award-winning recipes.
Every bottle of Whitby Gin and Rum is a testament to our dedication to craftsmanship, sustainability, and the beauty of our coastal home. Join us on a journey of taste and tradition, and raise a glass to the spirit of Whitby.
